Carolina Explorer 6-23-2010 Redfish, Family Fun, Flounder, Sharks, Spanish, and a few kings.

June 23rd, 2010 by Capt. Robert Schoonmaker | Comments Off

It has been hot and so has the fishing.  We have been leaving early on all the trip to catch the tides right and fish in the cooler temps.  Inshore we are still catching redfish on lures or live bait.  The flounder and trout have been active as well.  We can cast lures or use live bait, I will guide you to a great day on the water.  Catching fish and having fun is the goal of every trip. 

We have had a few inshore slams on the flats boat consisting of  flounder, trout and redfish.  Most of these taken on grubs and topwater.

Just off the beach we have caught lots of spanish and blues.  This is a great family trip.  After catching as many as needed for a great family dinner we then go shark fishing.  Catching these hard fighting speedsters is a blast on 12lbs class rods.  The kids old and young love this.  We have also been catching a few kings and flounder on these trips as well.

Check out the pics and see what you and your family might catch.

Carolina Explorer 6/8/10 fishing report, Redfish, Spanish, Flounder, Trout, Sharks and Silver Snappers…

June 8th, 2010 by Capt. Robert Schoonmaker | Comments Off

Sorry for the delay in the fishing reports. Thankfully I have been fishing and the fish are biting.  Inshore we have been catching lots of redfish on lures and live bait.  The new flatsboat has us fishing with plenty of room and in style.  We have also been catching flounder and a few trout while fishing for the reds. All this action has been taking place in the calm protected water of the flats and creeks.  If you are looking to get out of the crowds and enjoy some great fishing action, then a trip aboard the Redfish Explorer or Carolina Explorer is for you…..

 Just off the coast the spanish mackerel and blues have been biting in great numbers.  We have been trolling just off the beach or casting spoons at breaking fish on the surface.  The flounder and sharks have also been around the wrecks and reefs just off the coast.  If you want to try for something a little bigger the kings are cruising the beachs and just offshore at this moment. 

 Now is a great time to plan you family fishing trip.  Call today 910-264-1807.
